I've updated the code, samples and documentation for the wwDbResourceProvider project that provides a database driven Resource provider for ASP.NET. The tool provides two separate providers (one simple raw provider and one based on a full resource manager) as well an ASP.NET front end application that allows for dynamic resource editing and updating.
You can find the download, white paper and online samples here:
In this update there have been a handful of fixes especially related to RESX resource imports and exports which caused problems in certain RESX scenarios. In addition there have been a number of UI updates and fixes for the ASP.NET UI front end for editing resources in real time. I've also updated the online demo and hopefully added a few more restrictions that will keep the demo from breaking from malicious free form data entry. There are always some folks who'll try to screw things up on purpose (and i just dug my own grave, eh?). The new code adds a number of additional checks for invalid Locales and the a few more demo specific checks that disable certain features in the online demo that made it a bit too easy to break the application with invalid resources.
Keeping up with Demo Maintenance
Phew. Keeping up with keeping the demo of an administrative tool like this running as a demo is tough since this is a scenario that the front end wasn't really designed for. <shrug> I hope the recent changes will keep the demo running for a while, although I'm sure I'll have to update the data from time time. Thank god for Sql Data Compare, which makes short work of the update process - it's just a matter of remembering from time to time...
I'll be at DevIntersection in Vegas this fall giving sessions on ASP.NET Core with Angular and Localization. Thinking of coming? Use discount code STRAHL and save a few bucks. If you do be sure to stop by and say hello!
